php – Error #1045 Access Denied in PhpMyAdmin

Posted by: admin July 12, 2020 Leave a comment


Basically I changed the password of MySQL via CMD and after that when I tried to visit the phpmyadmin page it shows me Error #1045 Access Denied.

I would like to how to fix this problem. Thanks in advance.

How to&Answers:

Go to phpMyAdmin folder (in my case it is C:\wamp\apps\phpmyadmin3.2.0.1). In the file config.inc.php change the line

$cfg['Servers'][$i]['auth_type'] = 'config'


$cfg['Servers'][$i]['auth_type'] = 'cookie'

Now the password will be asked on your first visit of the phpMyAdmin page


you have to change the database password value in C:\wamp\apps\phpmyadmin3.4.5\config.inc.php into your MySQL database password

$cfg[‘Servers’][$i][‘password’] = ‘yourMySQLpassword’;


Simply, clear your cache and refresh the page. That should help you out!


You might need to change the password in the PPHMyAdmin config-db.php file.
